PTA HELP WANTED

As the end of school year draws closer, we need your help in getting ready for 2018-2019!   All of the current Executive Board members have students in 8th grade, so we need all new members to keep the PTA going!   
In addition to the Executive Board Positions, we have openings for Chair/Co-Chair positions for various committees.  All of the roles and responsibilities can be viewed at 2018-19 PTA Volunteer Interest.  Signing up indicates an interest…it doesn’t lock you into the position!   On average, these roles require just a 3-5 hour per month commitment (some are less – and some happen just once or twice a year).  Sharing the position would further reduce the time commitment.  Please consider sharing your time and talents.  Volunteering for just a few hours a month can have a big impact at Lake Middle School!  Feel free to contact us regarding any of the positions at lakepta@gmail.com.

Please join us for our final PTA Meeting of the year on May 14th at 7pm in the Media Center.  We’ll have elections for the Board, a quick review of the year and next year’s budget, and a Starbucks gift card will be raffled off!
  
Hope to see you there -   
Lake PTA Board
